Jonny’s recovering well after being stabbed in prison, where he was awaiting bail after being charged with the murder of patient, Julie Kale. Now he’s on the mend, though, hospital boss Guy wants him off the ward – but Jac believes he’s innocent and refuses to discharge him, knowing he’ll end up back behind bars. Meanwhile, Julie’s husband Steve returns to the hospital. After Julie died, it was discovered that a new battery powering her Kibo heart machine had been swapped for an old one.

But it might be too late as Guy’s discharged Jonny himself and the police arrive to take him back to prison. Can the team prove Jonny’s innocence?
